  • no, it is generally recommended that you wait until at least 4 mo., preferably 6 mo. Once she gets a little older, she'll start eating more at a time and less frequently.

  • A friend of mine did it that soon but i would talk to your pediatrician. You should be able to just call and ask.

  • apparently ur suppose to wait until 6 mths to give them rice cereal(i had to wait till my daughter was 8 mths due to being premature).. I was told it does something to their stomachs if you feed it to them to soon... How much is she eating every 2 hours at 2 mths?.. She should only be eating 4 ox every 2 hours at this point, if shes eating to much maybe try switching her foods?... I found enfamil A+ did wonders for my daughter. Maybe try given her 6 oz at one feeding, then 3-4 hours later try giving her 4 oz.. a couple hours later go for 6.. and before bed give her 6. that should work, We had to do it with our daughter.

  • What does her eating every 2 hours have to do with cereal? If she's hungry, then feed her. That's all there is to it.

    Mine took 8oz every 2-3 hours starting at 6 weeks. They were hungry, so I fed them.

  • talk to your doctor. Almost every mom on here will bash you.... but only your doctor will have the right answer for your child.
